    It amazes me how much slack is afforded to motorists, and when there is a crack down on “safety”, it seems that it is just the cyclists and pedestrians that are targeted. Motorists going 10 mph above the speed limit is perfectly fine, motorists coming to a complete stop in the crosswalk way past the stop bar, well that’s OK too but cyclists who do not put their foot down when stopping now that’s dangerous and should be get the full vengeance of the law.

    It is time to get back to the spirit of the law and stop trying to get cyclists to do things that only really only make sense for 350 hp 2 ton killing machines then ones driven by human power at human speeds.
